General News (Thu Nov 23): did not practice on Wednesday. Davis will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 12 game, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
General News (Tue Nov 21): got the start in the team's Week 11 game Monday, Nov. 20, against the Atlanta Falcons, finishing with just 18 yards on six carries, as well as 41 receiving yards on a pair of receptions. David, however, is "unlikely" to play in Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers after suffering a groin injury Monday night.
Week 12: at San Francisco 49ers
FBG says: Great matchup. The Seahawks running backs struggled again this past week, as usual, but Russell Wilson was the story of this rushing offense as he posted a season-high 86 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown. Wilson led the Seahawks in rushing yards for the second time in the last three games as he ranks second among quarterbacks in rushing yards. Mike Davis was promoted to the starting running back for the Seahawks this week, but he couldn't get anything going with just six carries for 18 yards before injuring his groin in the third quarter. J.D. McKissick saw quite a few snaps on passing downs while carrying seven times for 30 yards with most of his usage coming after Davis left the game. Pending the injury status of Davis, expect him to start for this backfield again this week as the pair of Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls are being phased out of this offense. The 49ers rushing defense struggled again in their last outing as they allowed five yards per carry to the Giants backfield. Even with a rare pass-heavy game script, this 31st ranked rushing defense (133.5 rushing yards per game) gave up over 100 rushing yards to opposing running backs for the fourth straight game. A silver lining is that they did not allow a rushing touchdown to running backs for the second straight week, but the 49ers are still allowing the most fantasy points per game to the position. They have a couple big difference-makers in Deforest Buckner and Reuben Foster, but this defense is depleted outside of those two. If Mike Davis is healthy enough to play this week, he should have a good chance at some yards against this abysmal unit despite the Seahawks' continued poor offensive line play.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 11 vs ATL (6 / 18 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Davis was brought up off the practice squad and promptly played a large role in the running game, while Thomas Rawls was a healthy scratch. Davis looked at least as good running as Chris Carson did before he got injured, and it was beginning to look like the Seahawks might have found a ground game. Davis also contributed as a receiver, adding 41 yards on two screen plays. Unfortunately, he left the game in the third quarter due to a groin injury. Before the injury, Davis's power running was making a clear case for a start next week as well.
